Flagler County - The Quiet Side of Florida

Flagler CountyNestled between St. Augustine and Daytona Beach along nearly 20 miles of Atlantic Ocean beaches, Flagler County was passed by in the rush to develop Florida. Folks who continue to visit and many who've decided to make it home don't mind that at all.

Palm Coast and Flagler County now promotes itself as a haven from the pressures of the world (and some of the rest of Florida, too)! There are corners of this region where it seems that time stands still among the slow moving creeks shaded by canopies of trees, salt marshes that are home for birds and sea life, and quaint beachside communities where you can still find a rich history, yet also peace and solitude.

There's plenty of stunning golf in Flagler County. More than ten courses offer great contrasts between Oceanside links-style layouts, inland marsh designs, those with many lakes and others carved from the woodlands. Yet there is also much to do in this natural haven, with many festivals and events throughout the year that celebrate the arts, history and culture of this area and its people. Parks are plentiful, offering opportunities for both fresh and salt water fishing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, biking, bird watching, tennis and picnicking.

Flagler CountyWhether it's a historic drive down A1A, fishing off the Flagler Beach Pier or visiting a site like Marineland, the World's First Oceanarium (with over 70 different marine species) to feed and pet the dolphins, folks in Flagler County believe everyone should take the time to smell the sea air.

Shopping is abundant and varied, from quaint beachside shops to the unique boutiques in the European Village in Palm Coast. And art and cultural activities are available through the Flagler Auditorium, Flagler Symphonic Society, Flagler Art League and more.
